Pink and Green Pastel Mani

Hello everyone.

I wanted something fun for the bank holiday weekend so I did this Saturday...

This is 2 coats of each polish - Nails Inc, Oxford Circus and China Glaze, Re-fresh Mint. The pink was a PITA to apply - very streaky and hard to work with, but I guess it's just what you have to live with when using pastels. Then I put 2 coats of Orly's Prisma Gloss in gold over the top to make it sparkly. I love this top coat. You have to really shake it to spread the glitter out as it all sinks to the bottom of the bottle, but it's so worth it. The sparkles are quite fine and because they're holo they catch the light perfectly.

I didn't realise how long I've let my nails get until I saw this photo. They are all nicely filed down now and my little stump is doing well :)

Have you all had a nice long weekend?


  1. Fun mani, looks like candy!

    We in the U.S. have a long weekend coming up; thinking I'll do my nails in my school colors for it as I'm going to my class reunion.

  2. That sounds fun KarenD. Did you have good colours? In my high school it was black and white :S not very interesting. Lol.

  3. this is great! have a good holiday!

  4. How cute and pretty! Love your candy manicure!

  5. I had forgotten all about my Orly's Prisma Gloss until I saw this. Thanks. I just spiced up my mani with it. :)
